story of a young, non-religious Jewish couple and their 5-year old daughter
who flee Nazi Germany in 1938 to try to survive in the wilds of Kenya.
This is a tender, intuitive, captivating 138-minute journey of change
and maturation with exceptional acting by all.
The gorgeous cinematography captures the essence of life in Africa.
This film contains an original, brilliant depiction of African
natives as normal people who just choose to live their lives differently
than those who choose to live in cities, instead of showing them as
ignorant, subhuman savages, which is the way they are generally depicted on
the screen. This is a wonderful
film. I was emotionally exhausted when it ended. In German with subtitles.
